    I mean progressives were pretty darn racist, not to long ago.

    Like the progressives, Jacksonian democrats right?
    Pretty left wing, in many, many areas but pretty darn racist in others.

    Those are pretty rare, but they happen. You find the opposite more often- economically conservative, but socially liberal. Libertarians, for example (at least in their purest form) fall in that bucket. And you find socially and economically liberal or socially and economically conservative together more often than either split.
    Social conservatism, is not automatically ethno/racial centrism.
    Keep on poisoning the well with ignorance.

    Exactly. You could have gays beating up straight people just as easily as you could have straight people beating up gays.

    Eh, ok. I'll accept that... Although in practice they seem to overlap almost 100% of the time. BUT ethno/racial centrism IS automatically social conservatism. Deal?

    Nice deflection, but it won't wash. You're a bigot against anyone to the right of you politically, because your bigotry is irrational and based on subjective feelings, assumption, fallacies and wrong information. Your attitude about "the right" is much like the attitude of a bigot that hates black people but has never bothered to get to know a black person "because he knows all he needs to know about them already".

    Incorrect.
    Ethno/racial centrism is not automatic for any political ideology.
